New course dates for 2015 - Shoe Making and Pattern Making for Bespoke Shoes

We've settled back into the routine of shoe making after our various summer forays and have now had a chance to plan the courses for next year, 2015.

All of our London courses are based in central London at Cockpit Arts in historic Bloomsbury, within easy reach of the capital's outskirts via bus and underground services and the mainline train stations at Waterloo, Kings Cross and Euston.

We are offering hand sewn shoe making courses in London in spring, summer and autumn next year: 
Intensive Hand Sewn Shoe Making, London
5th  – 17th January
3rd – 15th August 
5th – 17th October 

In July, we are delighted to welcome back Fiona Campbell who will be taking students step-by-step through her comprehensive Pattern Making for Bespoke Shoes course. 
Pattern Making for Bespoke Shoes London - 27th – 31st July. 

This is immediately followed by our two-week Intensive Hand Sewn Shoe Making course from 3rd - 15th August. 

The London Intensive Hand Sewn Shoe Making course is £1990 and the Pattern Making for Bespoke Shoes course is £799. If you book both a Shoe Making course and the Pattern Making course together there is a £250 discount. 

If New York is a more convenient location for you, then join us in the spring when Brooklyn is looking its best. 

Based in the heart of trendy Williamsburg at Brooklyn Bespoke, Jesse Moore will once again be unravelling the tricks and techniques of pattern making.

Pattern Making for Bespoke Shoes, New York 4th – 8th May.

...followed immediately by our two-week, New York based, Intensive Shoe Making Course.

Courses in New York cost £2400 for the Intensive Hand Sewn Shoe Making and £799 for the Pattern Making (and don't forget the discount of £250 if you book both together).

London based shoe making enthusiasts wanting a more relaxed experience should sign up for our Monday evening classes from 6 - 9pm. The classes cost £485 per term and although we have a short waiting list, places do become available each term, so it is always worth putting your name down. Just email us to let us know that you are interested.

Summer: April 13th - June 29th;  May 4th Bank Holiday; half term holiday w/c 25th May

The booking forms and dates will go up on the website shortly, so if you are interested please email us in the first instance. We look forward to sharing our students' journeys into shoe making, and their achievements, with you next year.

Until next week happy shoemaking!
